The BEST make-up under €5!

Heyhey, today I’ll be showing you the best low-budget make-upproducts I own. As you guys know, I’d love to buy some expensive make-up sometimes, but I can’t life without my low-budget products!

How cool is it to find drugstore/low-budget make-up that will work as good (or even better) as the expensive edition? I mean, as a student, I can’t afford to pay €20 for a concealer or mascara every 3 months. Who’s with me? Haha, I hope to give you some tips to save some money today by sharing these great low-budget beauty finds! Enjoy!

Catrice Glam & Doll Volume Mascara Waterproof (€3.99)

I’ve already talked about this mascara a lot of times on my blog, so I will keep this short. It’s the only mascara that works for me! It separates my lashes, it gives volume, it keeps the ‘curl’ in shape all day and it doesn’t smudge!

Essence Longlasting eye pencil in 05 c’est la vie! (€1.59)

This is the only colored eyepencil I use. I love to use it with just a little bronzer in my crease and highlighter in my inner corner. I love the silver color of it. It makes my everyday make-uplook a little more special!

Miss Sporty Studio Lash The Miaoww Eye Liner Black (£2.99)

This is a felt tip eyeliner, it looks like a pencil. It is a super easy eyeliner for all the beginners out there. Even though I’ve been using eyeliner and doing cat-eyes for years now, I still consider myself as a beginner. It is a super cheap pencil where you can easily work with! Oh, and it’s also super black!

Essence Matt Matt Matt 01 Natural Kiss Lipstick (€2.39)

I’ve always been a fan of the normal lipsticks from essence. They have a lot of different colors and almost all the colors have a lot of coverage on the lips! This color in particular has been my favorite since I bought it. It is a perfect mix of red, pink, mauve, beige and peach which gives a better-than-my-lips appearance. I love it!

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette (€4.25)

I have to admit that some of the colors in this palette are a little bit tricky, but once you know how the use this, the palette becomes your favorite! I mean, how can such a low-budget brand have such pigmented and blendable eyeshadows. I was shook (and I still am). So if you’re looking for a more unique palette, definitely check out this palette. I do have to say that this is the old version, the new version has a different packaging!

Primark Chocolate Highlighter (£2.50)

Primark recently came out with a chocolate collection, a PHr collection and a nudes collection and they really stepped up their game! I really wanted to buy a highlighter because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it, and it was all right. The glow is amazing, the packaging looks adorable and it even smell like chocolate. I do have to say that it gives more of a golden glow. I thought it would be a pink glow, but the glow is really nice!

Essence I♥Colour intensifying eyeshadow base (€2.59)

This eyeshadow base does a very great job making my eyeshadow look super pigmented. It also makes it stay in place all day! It covers all the discoloration up and the formula is very soft. Everything I want for an eyeshadow base!

Essence all about matt! fixing compact powder (€2.99)

I have to say, I haven’t tried a lot of translucent face powders yet, but this one is just so good! It does everything you want, it makes the foundation and concealer matt and you can do a while with it. I’ve already been using this particular powder for almost a year now!

Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer 005/010 (€3.59)

My favorite liquid concealer ever! I’ve never liked a concealer more since this one came out. When it’s empty, I always buy a new one! The coverage is just so good, the color is amazing for me and it blends like butter. I love this concealer!

Much love, Anne

  1. Ik gebruik ook dagelijks de concealer van Catrice, eerst in kleur 010, maar toen ik 005 ontdekte was het nog een betere match voor mij! Topproduct 👍🏻

    1. Ik moet zeggen dat ik 010 vaker gebruik. Ik heb het gevoel dat 005 een gelere ondertoon heeft waardoor het af en toe gek staat. De licht-heid van deze concealer past mij wel beter! Dankjewel voor je comment (:

  2. I love the Catrice concealer and I’ve used one of the Essence liners and I really like it too! I’ll definitely check out some other products mentioned in this post if I see them around because I’m sure I’m gonna love them too 😊

  3. I absolutely adore the Essence products. I am currently using the Essence long lasting eye pencil and the translucent fixing compact powder and have an Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick which I love (not sure on the number). Essence products are also incredibly reasonable here and are so worth it.
    Wet n Wild is my choice, also cheap, and also because they are cruelty free. 🙂 x

    1. Yes, I can’t live without Essence! It’s just so cheap and some of their products are so good. Great to hear you feel the same about it! And of course, I do love a cruelty free brand as well like Wet n Wild.
